Apple may have discontinued the original HomePod, but has introduced the HomePod Max. But it’s not what you think.

It’s not a speaker, but a small house. A pod that you live in. In other words, it’s a “teeny” tiny home. Sources tell me that Apple originally intended to call it the “Apple Home,” but decided the HomePod Max was a better moniker.

The pod-like home is powered by sun and wind and is small enough to be transported anywhere. (Apple hopes you’ll be towing it behind an Apple Car.) 

The HomePod Max comes with a built-in iPad Pro, a MacBook, and two HomePod minis (the speakers, not an even smaller abode). Apple wanted to include a 16-inch MacBook Pro, but there wasn’t enough room since the HomePod Max only has 100 square meters of living space. 

Waterproof (and, yep, you can use it as a houseboat), it comes with a bed for one, a a kitchenette with running water and a bathroom complete with shower.
